Thanks i did that and its has not helped it is loading to install xp disk but when it gets to partitons it say they are not xp compatiable they need to be format i think. first is unpartition 8 mb and second is partition 1 (FAT32) 39190 mb. an it will go no further.
Glad you got the problem fixed.

Yes you have to delete the partitions making one large drive and then format it in NTFS as XP is more secure in this file system and utilizes the space better.
